Zeiss Spotter 60

 

Three key features make the Spotting Scope 60 – 60 x 72, or Spotter 60, from Carl Zeiss Optronics the ideal instrument for the observation and identification of objects, as well as target hit monitoring: high magnification of 20x to 60x; 72 mm lens; MIL-DOT reticle with continuously adjustable illumination. The size of the reticle pattern changes with the magnification level. The short, compact construction and the optical and ergonomic design of the Spotter 60 fully meet the demands of users regarding versatility. The automatic brightness memory permits fast selection of the already stored brightness levels of the reticle. A customer-specific reticle can be integrated upon request

 

The Spotter 60 can be mounted to a tripod, thus enabling secure and steady use. Up to five Picatinny rails complying with MIL Standard 1913 can be mounted to the housing toenable the attachment of additional devices. With a residual light attachment, the spotting scope becomes a high-power observation device for nighttime use.

Wow!  Now I'm almost sure Leupold's patent on their FLP scope must have expired because in the very same year both Bushnell and now Zeiss come out with their own versions of a scope that has been on the market for decades.
 
I wonder what the Zeiss is going to cost...

Oh my... $3000 USD??? 

That had better be one crazy good scope.

By the way, what would having Picatinny rails accomplish for the user of this scope?  What exactly would you attach?

I would imagine a laser designator of some sort.

What's a "laser designator?"

The US Military uses coded laser designators to "paint" targets for air munitions, they also use IR laser designators to provide coordination when used with nightvision.  Obviously not really something that a civilian would be able to utilize, but I imagine it has rails for similar military applications.
